To celebrate the release of an awesome 6-pack of DLC from Def Leppard featuring Pro Guitar upgrades for every song, we're giving away DLC codes for Xbox 360 to download the pack, and Rock Band 3 Wireless Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar Controllers for each console over the next few days.
In addition to a few contagious rock songs, this RBN Highlights article features some of the most unusual tracks ever to come through the Rock Band Network.
One of the most requested bands on RockBand.com, Def Leppard make their first appearance as downloadable content in Rock Band this week, and what an appearance it is! Six iconic tracks from the '80s superstar group land in the Rock Band Music Store this Tuesday.
Looking for something really unusual to add to your Rock Band library? From the first mashup in Rock Band (Robin Skouteris's "American Hero vs. Done") to the first experimental noise piece (SNMT's "PON DE FIOR"), we've got some great choices for you. If you'd prefer something more traditional, try the new pair of Free Spirit songs for traditional rock, or pick up Thomas Walker's version of "Gymnopédie No. 1 (Satie)" (because after all, classical is a tradition).
This month's Rock Band Network Artist of the Month is August Burns Red! The band has one song in RBN right now - "Mariana's Trench" - in both standard and double bass pedal versions, and they're bringing another song - "Internal Cannon" to RBN shortly! We talked to JB Brubaker at this year's Warped Tour and we had bassist Dustin Davison answer some questions for us.
